Fighting for a better future? We need your help.

Creating a more equitable world takes a lot of time and energy, but at Kiva we’re in it for the long haul. 100% of money lent on Kiva goes to funding loans. That means we rely on donations from people like you to make this work possible. For a limited time, if you donate $35 or more, a $25 bonus will be added to your account (you’ll get an email once it’s there).

A loan of $900 helped buy farming supplies.


Teresa Del Carmen's story

Teresa lives in the municipality of Ticuantepe. She is 39 years old and has two school-aged children. Her husband is an independent construction worker and helps with household expenses. Sra. Teresa is a farmer growing pineapples and citrus fruits which she sells in the market. She is seeking a loan to buy supplies for her fields such as fertilizer and other necessities so the harvest will be a good one. Then her income will increase and the standard of living for herself and her family will improve.
